The Game 

It’s a game of push and pull,

How much can I take before I

Crumble, or retaliate?

How long until I am isolated?


Starve, scratch, snip and snap.

The sins I commit towards

Myself and against others,

In this game of destruction.


The trick is to never let it show,

Never allow the surface to crease

Or crack. Composure of a swan

Whose beauty depends on hidden panic.


Existing on the water’s surface, frantic

Struggles to avoid plunging into

The black depths. Frantically

Starve, scratch, snip and snap.


The game is a test that

Infects and drains nature.

It is addictively dangerous,

It keeps you on the precipice.


Two motives in the one mind,

At war, pushing and pulling

in defiance of one another.

This game of self-sabotage.
